Three Cased Images of Armed Civil War Soldiers

Lot of 3, including: 

Quarter plate tintype of a bearded, wide-eyed soldier standing in a studio before a patriotic backdrop, holding a rifled-musket and bayonet in his right hand. Housed in half case. Plate has been resealed and includes notation that plate was cleaned. Some crackling to surface of plate. Image a little dark, but contrast still very good. 

Sixth plate tintype of a uniformed corporal standing with rifled-musket and bayonet in hand, his cheeks lightly tinted pink and jacket buttons lightly highlighted in gold. Housed in full case. Few minor creases in tintype.

Sixth plate tintype of a uniformed soldier wearing a sly grin, standing before a backdrop featuring a Civil War tent and American flag. The subject poses with his rifled-musket and bayonet. Housed in half case. Image a bit blurred and appears to be a period copy tintype. 

Estimate: $400 - $600
